The Book of Gabrielle (2018) lesbian movie
The Book of Gabrielle is the latest film by British writer & director Lisa Gornick. Here is the official synopsis: Lesbian illustrator Gabrielle is writing a graphic novel and in exploring the world of sex, she discovers more about herself than ever before. Gabrielle is composing an illustrated guide book very subtly called ‘How To Do It.’ At a book signing she meets Saul, an established male writer who is straight. She both loves and hates his work which has seeped into her secular Jewish life from childhood. The more Gabrielle tells him about her book the more he wants to know about her intimate life and the substance of her relationship with her younger girlfriend Olivia. As her book takes form, is Saul jealous or desirous? Their friendship is tested as is Gabrielle’s relationship with Olivia. The film muses on how we write, how we draw. And the nature of “story” and what it makes us do. Gabrielle and Olivia are portrayed by Lisa Gornick and Anna Koval. This video is the official UK trailer of the movie shared by Peccadillo Pictures.
